TEAM TALK: CERYS O’BOYLE

Wakefield Trinity Ladies FC, this weekend, honoured the two-year anniversary of the passing of former Sheffield University student, Cerys O’Boyle, a personal friend of Rosie Gresswell who sadly died aged 21 on the 13th October 2018 after a short stay in hospital.

Cerys was Captain of the Sheffield University Women’s Football team and had just started a Masters in Modern History before her death.

Rosie, Trinity’s shotstopper, wanted to do a feature to mark the anniversary and honour her as a friend. How fitting that it’s our first one!

Those who knew Cerys described her as passionate about the club, about football and about life in general. She was very kind and often bought food for the homeless without expecting reward for doing so.

It was this kindness that created a legacy as former and future Sheffield University alumni will raise valuable funds for Sheffield-based Charity, Roundabout.

Roundabout is South Yorkshire’s local youth housing charity providing shelter, support and life skills to young people aged 16-24 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

The charity now supports over 250 young people living in accommodation every day, including a Rapid Rehousing outreach team that seek out young people sleeping rough and look to provide them with shelter and develop their long term living skills.

For more information on the valuable work Roundabout deliver in the South Yorkshire community please visit their website – www.roundabouthomeless.org – we hope you will support the legacy of Cerys O’Boyle by doing your bit in society, whether with Roundabout or another impactful Charity or service.
